Spark More Color For Less with Ink Cubes

I don't know about you, but I love to create in color!  With layering stencils and stamps with ink blending, it's effortless to add depth and color to an image with ease!  The only tough decision may be which colors to use.

It's a good thing so many designers offer a bunch of vibrant colors to make your projects pop.  The selection is so good--that you may want to collect them all!  If that's your thing, then consider buying ink cubes to boost your collection. 

Why ink cubes? 

Ink cubes are affordable, easy to store, and allow you to have every hue of color at your fingertips.  You can also spread your love (and your dollars) among your favorite brands, as the quality of inks from these trusted companies is high end. (Click any pic to learn more)

Where to start?

Fill in a color gap.  If your palette is in need of some more purples, then you can just get a few cubes to even things out. How lovely are these shades, from the My Favorite Things ink cubes collection!  (Click any pic to learn more)

Go for the gradient. Flowers are a great way to test out different shades of one color.  To make it even easier for you, companies like Gina K Designs and Altenew have created small sets of gradients that you can instantly use with layered stamps and stencil designs. (Click each pic to learn more)

Specialty ink required.  If you enjoy coloring stamped images with alcohol ink markers, colored pencils, or watercolors, you must use an ink that won't bleed or smear.  Gina K Designs has an entire line of amalgam inks that do the trick!  She even offers different colors, to create invisible or light outlines.  My Favorite Things has an Extreme Black hybrid ink that also stands firm.

Shop for the product or project.  As I mentioned, layered stamp and stencil sets may be just the incentive you need to try out a few ink cubes.  Specific requirements (lilac for flowers, etc.) may also be a reason to add fresh colors to your collection.  Here are some great examples of sets that would look great in different tones!
